Hi folks.
I've been asked to pull together a set with a couple of other people on the theme of "Finding Home" or "Coming Home." It's for a fundraiser for refugees and homeless people.
We have some good ones, but one person is struggling to find one to lead.
The songs must have a strong, easy chorus so that the audience can sing along with the aid of lyrics projected overhead.
Any suggestions? Thanks!
So far we have:
Take Me Home, Country Roads
Rolling Home (John Tams)
South Australia
Plus an original song.

"Blue Mountain"

It may be too specific for you, but it's about someone's love for a place they've moved to.

Hilary, where did you learn "Blue Mountain"? I can't find a recording of it on Youtube. Lots of other Blue Mountain songs, but if that one is there, it's buried deep.

Feels like home by Randy Newman

Something in your eyes
Makes me want to lose myself
Makes me want to lose myself
In your arms

There's something in your voice
Makes my heart beat fast
Hope this feeling lasts
The rest of my life

If you knew how lonely my life has been
And how low I've felt for so long
If you knew how I wanted someone
To come along
And change my life the way you've done

Feels like home to me
Feels like home to me
Feels like I'm all the way back where I come from
Feels like home to me
Feels like home to me
Feels like I'm all the way back where I belong

I actually learned it in person from a singing group I attended briefly, but here are a couple youtube links.

Dougie MacLean's Caledonia

Or, if you want to include songs about looking for home as well, "Show me the way to go home"?
